Mission


To be a top provider of high-quality and easy-to-implement global guidelines through an optimized integrated program that will support an equitable economic growth by protecting the environment.



History


Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Miami, Florida, Certified Green Partners® began offering educational seminars to help print shops mitigate the impact of their operations, specifically through their use of paper, ink, and recycling


As we expanded our industry markets, we realized that seminars on these basic points were not enough to make a positive impact on the environment. In 2008, CGP created an integrated environmental management program by combining international standards, procedures, and practices.


The program was based on Corporate Social Responsibility standards including the Global Reporting Initiative, and the principles of the 3Ps (People, Profit, and Planet) of the global vision of sustainable development that was established by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1992.


Today, continuing our objectives, we are constantly updating our guidelines to meet new global requirements.



About CGP


Certified Green Partners® (CGP) is an independent, non-governmental certification organization committed to the integration of sustainable practices through education. By following our set of international guidelines, all public and private organizations, regardless of size, industry, the goods produced, or the services offered, can comply with environmental regulations at a local and global level.


The CGP set of guidelines gives world-class specifications for procedures, quality, safety, and efficiency. It also includes performance indicators that can be customized by certification level, geographic area, and regional factors. This ability to personalize the program allows any organization to create its own plan of action in regards to conservation.

When an organization complies with CGP guidelines, customers are guaranteed that they are receiving safe, trustworthy, and high-quality products and services.



Standards In Action


CGP provides international guidelines on sustainability and uses them as practical tools for tackling many of today’s global challenges, from managing water resources to improving the safety of the food we eat. We can help your organization to optimize every phase of your corporate environmental responsibilities, including:

Carbon Footprint

Governments increasingly use the carbon footprint as the core indicator of our impact on the environment. But does one indicator encompass all? CGP has produced an Integrated Environmental Management Program that sheds light on the importance of consistency in the guidelines of this field. Just one indicator can break down trade barriers and help build a more sustainable future.

Climate Change

Climate change is one of the major environmental challenges of our time. Global action is needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as to adapt to the inescapable changes. The CGP program can help prevent climate change in a number of ways. For example, we use guidelines for measuring greenhouse gas emissions while actively working to verify the claims of their impact to our environment.

Energy Efficiency

Today’s organizations face a major challenge to reduce energy consumption and dependence on fossil fuels. We can help you meet these energy demands by increasing energy efficiency and promoting the development of renewable energy technologies. CGP diligently updates its guidelines in order to keep up with the rapidly evolving technological climate. This ensures an optimal cost-effective option to reduce energy costs.




Health

Occupational health and safety practices require the collaboration and participation of both employers and workers. CGP has a diverse set of guidelines that focuses on the consideration of issues relating to occupational medicine, chemical hygiene, toxicology, education, engineering safety, ergonomics, psychology, and more.

Services

Services represent more than two-thirds of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). They are a core economic activity, contributing more to the GDP than both industry and agriculture combined. CGP works with guidelines that help ensure that services are of a consistently high quality.

Food

Food products regularly cross national boundaries at every stage of the supply chain. CGP’s international guidelines create confidence in the products we eat or drink by ensuring the world uses the same criteria for food quality and safety. CGP’s food guidelines provide specifications regarding the food chain, agricultural machinery, logistics, transportation, manufacturing, labeling, packaging, and storage.

Water Conservation

CGP’s water guidelines build confidence through consensus-based global solutions for optimal business practice, management of resources, risk assessment, metrics, and infrastructure. CGP facilitates sustainable water management, increases water potential, and helps alleviate water scarcity.

Construction

With the complexities surrounding the construction industry, it is important to ensure that efficiencies are in place. We can assist you in managing processes while promoting the use of responsible and reliable materials throughout the span of any new or existing project.


Become Certified


Although CGP created the certification program, we do not perform the process itself. The process is completed by a third-party organization, Elite Green Compliance International or any of its subsidiaries around the globe. CGP issues certificates and the right to use the CGP Seal of Compliance once the audit process has been completed by one of our team members.

There are three levels of certification: Basic, Green, and Green Plus.

 

Regardless of the certification level chosen by a participating entity, an independent third-party organization will assess current practices and create a customized plan that will help any organization reach the desired environmental requirements. All documented sustainable efforts are taken into consideration and converted into points using a scale that consists of 8 tiers. Each of these tiers represents a fixed number of points. The certification level of the company is based on the number of sustainability points accumulated, among other guidelines that must be met.

 

Our aim is a call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on environment and take actions that advance our goals.
